|A hymn written by R. Robinson|
(1)Come, Thou fount of every blessing,
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above;
Praise the mount! — O Fix me on it! —
Mount of God's unchanging love.
(2)Here I raise my Ebenezer,
Higher by Thine help I'm come,
And I hope by Thy good pleasure
Safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wand'ring from the fold of God;
He, to save my soul from danger,
Interposed His precious blood.
(3)Oh, to grace how great a debtor,
Daily I'm constrained to be!
Let that grace now, like a fetter,
Bind my wand'ring heart to Thee.
Prone to wander — Lord, I feel it —
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here's my heart, oh take and seal it —
Seal it from Thy courts above.
